2012 Just Woke Up In 2011 All Over Again

Tyler Durden's picture

While the analogs to 2011 and 2010 have come thick and fast and our early January call for a three-peat has proved all too correct so far, the last few days are starting to really scream 2011 chaos regimes as Gold, Stocks, Treasuries, and the USD are now mimicking the 'reaction function' of investors faced with a world on its own. Just as last year, Treasury yields were first to go, then stocks and gold diverged as the USD surged. Ironic that this is occurring on the day when Gold and 30Y Treasury bond prices are now outperforming the S&P 500 YTD.
